SINGAPORE - A new library focused on Continuing Education and Training (CET) – a collaboration between the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) and the National Library Board (NLB) – was launched today (Nov 28).

Located at the Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI), the LLiBrary will serve the campus as a resource centre for its trainers, trainees and employment facilitators for their training and career development needs. The library will also be open to the public.

Presently, the LLiBrary features a specifically collection of 8,000 physical non-fiction books, 30 periodical titles and more than 200 audio-visual materials that are topically catagorised into 12 topics, including Career, Design & Fashion and Retail. Digital copies of resources are also available through the library’s multimedia terminals that have also been specially curated for the purpose of CET. All resources are available for borrowing by the public.

The collaboration with NLB has allowed WDA to tap into the NLB’s pre-existing infrastructure for its libraries, allowing users to make use of their resources and databases.

The LLiBrary aims to encourage self-learning by allowing users to borrow materials via the self-borrowing machines and the NLB mobile app, or make use of the library’s ekiosks and catalogues.

WDA chief executive officer Mr Ng Cher Pong and NLB chief executive officer Ms Elaine Ng officially launched the library today.

“With The LLiBrary, individuals will have an additional platform to continue to learn and deepen their knowledge and skills,” said Mr Ng.
